Q

How can I download publications from sciencedirect.com (off Campus)?

I can't download any PDF-files from sciencedirect.com although I can read the full text online - but since I need some papers more often than only once, it would be more convenient for me to save them locally on my Computer instead of looking it up in the Internet, logging in etc.
Your help is greatly appreciated!

If you encounter any other issues with ScienceDirect, you can contact your subject librarian for one-on-one help, or consider using Ask a Librarian for instant research help via chat.
